EcoSmart Home launched by GoodWe

The EcoSmart Home from GoodWe is described as a total green energy solution, including Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) panels, storage and an energy management system.

The system uses the company’s PV building solutions, combining advanced PV technology with architectural aesthetics. Three solar panel types will be launched into the UK market for residential, garage and sunroom applications.

GoodWe’s energy storage solution (ESS) comprises a Lynx home battery that uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cell technology and hybrid inverters to maximise energy output, maximising self-consumption and facilitating back-up power.

The battery system stores excess solar power generated from the BIPV to inject into the grid to avoid restricting solar production and when solar production is weak the battery will discharge to support load consumption around the home.

Charge and discharge times can be set enabling the battery to be charged at off-peak rates and, if the charge in the battery is low, the system can automatically switch to grid power seamlessly.

The final component is the GoodWe Smart Energy Management System (SEMS), designed to provide total control over the home energy system, enabling monitoring of PV modules, checking of energy consumption and the customisation of load working hours to maximise power output.

SEMS includes the GoodWe EV charger which can supply solar power to electric vehicles.

“The EcoSmart Home solution is a visionary concept for domestic electricity that not only protects homeowners from rising costs but is also a highly sustainable solution that can reduce a home’s carbon emissions and, crucially, at a time of increasing electricity grid failure, provide energy security even if the grid goes down.”

He continued: “For installers, the days of having to source and fit panels, inverters and control systems manufactured by different suppliers is over. EcoSmart Home is a suite of products and control systems that are designed to work seamlessly together to provide a total home energy solution.”
